COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Upland lambics are fermented by wild yeast and aged in oak casks for over a year, which creates a tart, complex beer. We then add whole kiwis, giving the beer enticing aromas and flavors. The beer is bottle conditioned, which adds a zesty and refreshing carbonation. Kiwi Lambic is the perfect drink to share with friends over a plate of good cheese and fresh fruit.

Bottle Tower of Power Sour Hour 2011 This beer rocks! Pours hazy yellow with a small, white head. The aroma is way acidic, funky and fruity lemon juice, funky sock, kiwi and blue cheese. Medium-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and tickling carbonation. The flavor is eye-squintingly sour and uber fruity. Mega-tart, kiwi, raspy finish that dries way out. Big-time thanks to Dstructo for popping the top on this baby and sharing it with the south Florida crew!

750 ml caged and corked bottle, bottled on 12-6-10, Batch 134-08. Served in a flute, the beer pours a hazy dark gold color with about an inch carbonated white head that fizzled away quickly. No lacing, either. Aroma is mostly tart fruit, along with some funk, lemon peel and a bit of kiwi. The taste is nice and tart, the brew tastes like lemon peel, funk, tart apples, kiwi and oak. This is definitely a tart and acidic brew. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it has high but soft carbonation and its very easy to drink. I think this is a pretty good brew, and its my favorite of the Upland Lambics Ive tried so far. $19.79 a bottle and worth every penny!

illinismitty (2271) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 27, 2011
Bottle. Pours a semi turbid golden with a white head. Lots of wild funk in the nose. Medium bodied with an organic mouthfeel. Nice amount of sourness, with the kiwi being extremely subtle. This bottle is about 10 months old, so there is still some sugars left to counter the sourness nicely. Very acidic finish. A respectable American made sour. I would have loved a little more Kiwi myself.

Bottle (750ml) shared with HogTownHarry, garthicus, GregClow, jerc & mabel -- c/o j&m. Pours a murky yellow-peach with a spare diminishing bubbly white. Aroma: Whoa Nellie! Super tart and sour with lots of fruit, some vinegar, white wine and wood. Huge tart and sour fruit flavour along with some vinegar and plenty of acidity. Medium bodied. Simply amazing!

mabel (8652) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 9, 2011
[3896-20110819] 750mL bottle. Super sour Belgian yeast has a little underlying fruit. Hazy, orange brown body with a quick foamy off-white head. Super sour yeast continues in the flavour with hints of kiwi-like fruit. Full body is all sour. Not sure I could have picked out the kiwi but I can see it now; phenomenal sour notes, nothing else quite like it. (8/3/8/4/15) 3.8-
Overheard: "Its the colour of shampoo.
